Windows 10: ISO advice on getting my system to run a manageable speed
ISO advice on getting my system to run a manageable speed
I have these little meters in my task bar I installed that show CPU and RAM usage and both freak out over little actions taken by chrome browser especially like scrolling down a page or simply having a page open really, but I imagine it's just a general pc performance issue. I'm in the seemingly impossible process of removing windows defender, but I suspect that won't be enough, but should help. My PC is a few years old but it shouldn't be moving this slow. I mean, my phone destroys my PC. It's gotta be software related.
As I've always done I've reviewed all processes running and as usual I don't know what I'm looking at but it does appear it's mostly system processes and nothing foreign/unwanted. So I joined this site hoping to get some suggestions as this has been going on forever even back when I had Windows 7, though I think it's worse with 10.
1. Install another AV. I've sometimes found Defender taking CPU resources in an uncontrolled way; installing Avast (free) works- light on resources.
2. Also see

As for resource use: no comment without useful and informative screenshots of your task manager...
Thank you. I've been to that page actually and many others and they all seem to go by the impression everyone has the pro version. I don't think there is a solution for the regular home version. Unless and hopefully someone would tell me wrong.
And yes, I was using avast before. I was just hoping to run NO antivirus. Tho I may use that just to turn off defender and have more control.
Next time I'm on my pc I'll get a screen shot. I use my phone whenever possible because it's way faster lol. The specs are the same actually, actually a gig more ram on the pc but I guess pc 's are more complicated.
Hi, in the tutorial, did you read as far as using a reg file? That's for people who don't have Pro, for example. All the tutorials are arranged that way.
To make it easy, download Winaero's Tweaker (free) - very useful and reliable) and use the disable Defender option. There's a link which will show you how it works, again including the reg file.
I use Avast free - I don't notice it except for the odd pop-up - some are meant to be informative, 1 a day or so is advertising as you'll probably know.

One of my i-5 SSD laptops has 16GB ram win10 64bit education version. Most of the time only about 25% of the ram is used. I wonder if I can use some of the ram to speed up things. In the old DOS/Atari days I would have a ram disk and copy an entire...

I was told by somebody here with VIP badges that I should not post here how to make Firefox run more smoothly in a Virtual Machine in Linux. It should be in a Linux forum. So I moved it there.
